The current state of our community has us in a rut. A rut of FPS'S and main stream games that over shadow the little guy (Indie developers)...
Games like CoD
are over shadowing quality gaming experience like Anna
(now for sale on Steam). Anna
is a somewhat open world horror/adventure title. This title has much to offer to many but is not getting the attention it deserves thanks to big titles like Amnesia: The Dark Descent
. (Also it is an indie title which makes it extremely difficult to get proper advertisement.)
Now some may say that this seems like a rant on the big guy (EA, 343, Treyarch, ect.). To that I say "No my dear sir". I am a huge supporter of Valve
who have brought amazing ideas to a somewhat bland gaming market. Also I am becoming more found of Valve
with their new Steam: Greenlight
. An application dedicated to the little guy.
I guess my point here is support the new idea. Show some support for indie. You never know when that indie title will turn into the new Portal
